Professional development for school support staff

Professional support staff in schools play an increasingly important role in supporting effective teaching and learning in and out of the classroom.

All members of a school’s workforce contribute to pupils’ standards of achievement, so we want to make sure that support staff have the same opportunities as qualified teaching staff for professional development.
